Gold Open Weave Jumper – c/o Sheinside
Knitted Overknees – American Apparel
Platform Boot Things – Office Sale
Velvet Scrunchie – Had it for years!
Included in my ‘branching out my wardrobe to include things that aren’t black’ movement, are metallics. Metallics are something that I’ve always shied away from, unless you count the shimmer of velvet and sequins. Occasionally these days I’ll pick up something with a metallic brocade pattern, but I’ll wear them once or twice and then regret buying them as I don’t really have anything to go with them (current lesson I need to learn- ‘only buy items if you know you have something to go with them’. I am currently running out of wardrobe space and this is the main reason why D: ), so I thought I’d never be able to crack metallics. Until I found this jumper, that is. As the gold is interwoven with the black, it makes for a nice stepping stone to metallics, and as you know, anything that is slightly sheer is a winner with me! And it goes with all my black stuff, aha (;, so yeah, I’m getting a lot of wear out of it ^.^.
I ordered theses shoes from the office sale a few months ago- I didn’t expect much, because they were only about £20 (I mean, bearing in mind how much shoes can be), but fuck, they’re awesome. I’ve worn them so much (you guys are only just seeing them now due to a lack of blogging on my behalf!) and they’re so comfy that you can wear them day and night (they have extra padding around the ankles as well, which is nice ^.^). Although they’re now sold out, I would recommend that you check out the Office Sale page, as they’re constantly updating it, and there are always some beautiful bargains in there (including marked down Jeffrey Campbells!). It’s one I always keep my eye on, as the markdowns are always amazing- I think these boots were down from £55 to £20, and my heeled boots with the buckles across were down from £75 to £20, and they’re the most comfortable heels I own! So yeah, the sale is definitely worth keeping tabs on 🙂
Hope you’re all having a lovely week so far! Love xx
